When we travel between Munich and Austria for skiing, we usually take the back road and often stop in Wasserburg an Imm. Why Wasserburg? We fly into Municah and hire a car, so for us it is an ideal place to go grocery shopping, to wander and to eat.
- Atmospheric old town
- Speciality small shops
- Cafes and restaurants
- Easy parking
- Access to supermarkets
The old town is quite atmospheric and a very pleasant place to wander around for a while. In the old town there are a number of smaller specialist shops. In particular look out for the artisan jeweller and the pottery shop located near the bridge. The church is worth a short visit and there are plenty of places to eat around the Town Hall Rat Haus area.
One of the best places to eat is the Die Schranne, an atmospheric cafe in the corner of the Rathaus. Here they have plenty of freshly baked breads and cakes, as well as a tasty menu. When we have been here it has been busy and full of locals coming and going.
Another good choice is the Perla di Calabria, one of many Italian restaurants in the village. We have only been here once (when Die Schranne was closed for owner holidays) but the service was good and it was full of locals enjoying their lunch.
There is parking in the old town, but we usually park in the parking building just across the bridge. It is easy to get to and free – so what is there not to like. And it gives a good view across the river to the colourful old buildings on the other side.
Up the hill from the old town are two supermarkets side-by-side: Rewe and Lidl. This is an ideal place to stock up on the food and drinks you need to take up the mountain skiing.
The city has a good website for city information http://www.wasserburg.de/en
